Little Girl's Letter to Gap

Tired of Predictable Pink Clothes, This Little Girl Wrote Gap a Letter

Alice Jacob is a 5-year-old girl who likes sports, superheroes, and cars — among other things. While shopping, however, she couldn't help but notice how all of the clothes that pertained to her interests were limited to the section for little boys. Meanwhile, all of the girls' clothing she found was stereotypically girly.

So, what did Alice do next? She wrote a letter to Gap Inc. asking them for more options. According to The Washington Post, Alice wanted to ask Gap to consider selling clothes that both related to her interests and would still fit her petite figure.

Read her letter in its entirety, below.

"My name is Alice Jacob and I am almost 5 and a half years old. I like cool shirts like Superman and Batman shirts and race car shirts, too. All your girl shirts are pink and princesses and stuff like that. The boys shirts are really cool. They have Superman, Batman, rock-and-roll and sports. What about girls who like those things like me and my friend Olivia?

Can you make some cool girls' shirts please? Or, can you make a no boys' or girls' section — only a kids' section?

The Washington Post has since sent Alice's important letter to the clothing company and they are awaiting a response.
